We're happy to announce that Chebucto Community Net is beginning to phase
in graphical access to the Internet, with our point-to-point protocol
(PPP) service, Chebucto Plus.
Chebucto Plus will mean fuller
access to the Internet through a Chebucto account.
Chebucto Plus members won't
need a second service provider to get graphics, video or sound
on the World Wide Web. As well as being able to use a graphical
browser like Netscape, you'll be able to transfer files more easily
too....whether it's to email a recipe from the Web to a friend, or
to download an article to your computer.
You can get details on Chebucto Plus,
including system requirements, at
(note upper case).
The Chebucto Plus option will
become a part of a sustaining membership package in the Chebucto
Community Net. Sustaining memberships are $100/year.
As a supporter of the Chebucto Community Net, you know this marks a major
addition to our service options. Our volunteer workforce wants to phase
Chebucto Plus in smoothly while
maintaining our basic service. This means
PPP accounts will be available to a limited number of people at first,
with more coming onstream as our resources allow.
We'll have frequent updates on how the project is going at the URL listed
above, and in the CCN Beacon. Stay tuned.
